Note from the band: This was a 4 song set of new songs that we recorded during a concert at big dog studios that was intended to be either a demo of some new songs or, possibly, a live recording. We were nervous and the performance didn't go that well so we scrapped the live release idea. Song List: Bonnie (early version) Hey! Mr. Lincoln. Sea by the Bay (unreleased song) and an early,...

The band shot all of the footage themselves based on a loose concept provided by Joel Sanderson, who also edited the video. This video was commissioned by Almost Ready Records, with a budget of only $200. The problem with shooting the video was that all of the band members lived in different parts of the country (U.S.).

This is a live recording made from a radio broadcast. We were invited to play a lunchtime concert on WBCN, the local commercial FM station on St. Patrick's Day of 1988. It was a pretty big deal for us, a little-known local band, to get the gig and I'm sure we were all a little nervous about going out live to a big audience. It was also pretty strange to be playing a show that started at noon. The setlist is pretty standard for that time, altho we snuck in a Fleetwood Mac cover that we had been...
